Training and Work
According to some estimates, more than 80% of all learning occurs on the job rather than in tertiary and post-tertiary education. In order to stay relevant and contribute to the human capital of future workers, learning will need to be tightly incorporated in work processes and become an integral part of workers’ and managers’ everyday activities. The same applies to (on-the-job) teaching and instructing, which is increasingly becoming an integral part of subject matter experts’ job descriptions in many companies. As a consequence, knowledge workers are not only on the demand side of on-the-job learning scenarios. They participate in the development of content and often in its delivery as well. This brings new challenges to the integration of learning and work.
One of the factors that hampers e-learning systems is the lack of interfaces that are compatible with business information systems. This impairs aligning learning with business processes and affects the speed at which organisations can improve the skills of their employees in accordance with continuous changes in business requirements. Next generation learning systems will understand the skills required by new business processes and match them with learning experiences in a way that will be transparent to the user. The new e-learning systems will be able to offer ubiquitous, mobile learning experiences and rich media content, while supporting users’ personal knowledge development plans. Furthermore, these systems will offer easy access to subject matter experts in order to contribute content to repositories and collaborative learning applications.
